UNO = United Nazis Organization

The main actors in this farce
I'm surprised you've not included the principal terrorist, the Iranian president, in the list of the dictators appearing in the UN.

The UN fails it's mission
The world needs a "united nations" to stand up for peace, justice and human rights. The UN, however, fails to do so. They're too busy criticizing Israel for defending her self against Islamic terrorism, while allowing tyrannic despots to pose as politicians and honored members of their boards. What a disgrace for mankind!

Money and power corrupt and a perfect example is the UN.I wish my country USA would leave that bastion of evil for no good comes from it unless you want to say it sets the example of what not to do and become.

what's real IS REAL
Hi, actually this isn't funny at all. That's the sad part.Yes, Israel does get a lot of "hits" but I think it's not just about Israel. It's the STATE of the world. A mess, for sure. Maybe it would be better if this were the "reel" world and not the "real world". Thanks.

Idea good, method used, not funny, nor clever.
I said it all in my summary.
September 26, 2007 5:25 PM
sad, true, but not funny
this is certainly a film that shows true realities of how the u.n. feels toward the blessed land and people however i do not find it funny. Unfortunately these people have the power and infuluence to sway large portions of the worlds people and in the end this can't (and hasn't) been good for the land of Israel or its people. again "sad,true,but not funny
September 26, 2007 3:38 PM
Right on the button! The hypocrisy of a majority of the UN members is unbelievable. If only the US would quit this worthless organization and ship its headquarters overseas somewhere else. Anywhere. Please! The UN is a farce.
September 26, 2007 3:37 PM
Shame on being silly about ignorant people, do you really believe this is helpful, useful or educational? This is a sad reflection on a terrible truth.
September 26, 2007 3:34 PM
The UN is irrelevant
The UN has outlived its usefullness and should got the way of the League of Nations.

don't like the UN-necessary video
I don't see how a video like this is helpful to Israel.I get that you want to point out the gross ridiculousness of the UN human rights council, but the concept and execution of this video are a puerile stab at best. You can do much better...
September 26, 2007 12:17 PM
I am 67 years old. For as long as I can recall severe criticism of the UN has been put forth and is justified. Noone seems to know how to reform the body so it becomes one of integrity and noone in the mainstream wants to do away with it. Please offer guidance. Tom

Not Even Funny
Sorry--the video made me ill. The UN is such a pathetic, politically motivated, agenda driven, useless farce of an institution (that some people actually take seriously) that I didn't find the video very funny. I actually think the UN is beyond useless and it's dangerous. You'll just have to do better to make me laugh at a pin-less hand-grenade.

UN-Necessary. The United Nations Human Rights Comedy
SO SO SAD. What's next ?....Well the next Hight Commisionner could be Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad . Any argument against that !!Somone who can still think clearly.

Funny Video That Makes You Think
This one minute comedy video about the UNHRC not only brings humor into a governing system that has become a joke, but really gets you to think about the nations that are in this council that scapegoat Isreal and yet have bad human rights records themselves.
September 26, 2007 9:47 AM
What is the point of this? Yes , there are violations going on in other countries. And you don't think there violations going on here in the US and in Israel? Yes, and can the UN do anything?...not really...each country has to help themselves. The US can't even help its own problems, how are we going to help anyone else?

my thoughts on U.N. human rights comedy
I have been a political satire improv actor for years, and,unfortunately this is NOT funny, but rather heartbreaking for me, and sad. I cannot seem to laugh at something so real!
September 26, 2007 9:26 AM
i agree with the concept but the execution was tasteless and and not in the least bit humorous
September 26, 2007 9:03 AM
Probably the most accurate portrayal of the UNHRC out there.
September 26, 2007 8:58 AM
I did not think this was funny at all. Please e-mail me the punchline?
The only thing I think is funny, is that the UNITED NATIONS IS A JOKE. PERIOD!!!!!!!

The International House of Corruption
The UN is a corrupt body, with only one purpose; Providing a podium to international tyrants to condemn Israel,a monumental waste.
September 26, 2007 8:36 AM
May God have mercy on these misguidedsouls (if there is forgiveness for them)
September 26, 2007 8:21 AM
can't laugh about THAT
Tell me: where is the FUN in it?
September 26, 2007 7:46 AM
Sometimes satire is the sharpest arrow in the quiver
Excellent satirical approach to a UN organization that clearly is a joke.
September 26, 2007 7:32 AM
Sad But True
It never ceases to amaze me how screwed up the UN is. And, what's worse is that there are people in this world who actually think it's necessary. I, along with many other Americans, wish we would get out of the UN and get the UN out of the US.A Friend of Israel
